I'm pretty sure it works a lot better from the last time I used it. They recalled a lot of the supplies. It just depends on the person. The pump had me in the hospital a lot I personally prefer the insulin pen

Well due to a recent hospital stay I meet my deductible early this year pump cost me 150$ and supplies are covered 100% for rest of year I was surprised as we have express scrips and they changed all my meds this year not covering this but will cover that so when Medtronic came back with that info I was crazy happy they told me with are meds ins next year till we meet deductible will be around 130$ a month that includes insulin just script copays
